Pet Sympathy Card....

One of my hostesses recently asked for a pet sympathy card.  So the challenge came to create a card while Stampin' Up! doesn't have a dog or cat stamp that isn't frolicking (Storybook Friends).  I came across a video by Mary Fish showing how to make a cute paw print and I thought that would be perfect!  Here's my interpretation...
 The paw is made by punching the second from the smallest framelit from the Hearts Collection and then the Small Oval Punch.  The size of your cardstock cannot be any wider than 3 1/8" or your toe pads won't fit correctly.  TIP:  Use some scrap DSP and temporary adhesive to place your toe pads where you want them while punching them out.
The inside of my card was stamped using the dog from the Every Little Bit (retired) stamp set and a puppy paws stamp I had laying around.

Here's what you will need to duplicate this card:
Stamps:       Thoughts & Prayers, Every Little Bit (retired)
Inks:           Midnight Muse, Soft Suede
Paper:      Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Midnight Muse
Other:        Linen Thread, Antique Brad, Hearts Collection framelits, Small Oval punch, Modern Mosaic embossing
                   folder, Lattice embossing folder

Forever Stampin',
